If you're like many of us, you don't like leaving your furry family member miles away to be trusted by a random stranger or have that random stranger enter your house. That is why Disney offers pet vacations.
On these pet vacations, your furry friend can be pampered at the daycare with a 17,000 sq. ft. Air-conditioned indoor space, 10,000 sq.ft. outdoor runs and play areas (covered), and a 25,000 sq.ft. dog park. Disney has accommodations for up to 300 pets, two 1,100sq.ft. doggy day camp rooms, and even a full-service grooming salon. This day camp can accommodate all manner of furry or feathery friends. But if you bring anything besides a dog to stay at one of the only 4 resorts that is pet friendly you will be turned away. Right now the resorts only accommodate dogs, but they are currently reviewing their policies and procedures.
There is no weight, size, or breed limit to Disney on the books. Dogs are expected to be well-behaved, leashed in public areas, and properly vaccinated. There is a head count however, only two dogs per room per visit. And only certain sections of the 4 resorts are dog friendly.
Prior to check in you must provide an undated vaccination record to insure each animal is healthy and doesn’t have something that could make other two or four legged visitors sick. At check in each dog receives a Pluto's Welcome Kit which includes a pet ID tag, a mat, bowls, and a dog walking map. During your stay, the staff will be careful of your furry friend when cleaning and restocking the rooms. Each night of your stay will be assessed a cleaning fee to take care on any accidents or other damage caused by your pets, starting at $25 a night. Not only is this fee to clean the room but it prevents allergies and cross contaminants between passing guests. When not used as a pet friendly room, others without pets are allowed to stay there.
While your dog may be allowed in one of 4 resorts, they are not allowed in the parks. The only exception to this rule is for disabled person with certified service dogs. The only thing left to say is Fido, Rex, or Pluto can have a run in the park and a nap in your bed or a stay at camp for a fee, discounts available for multiple stays during one vacation. Or let them relax in the room while you go for lunch, leave the crate behind because dear Pluto had the run of the room while you step out for a dip in the pool, dinner, or take in a few rides.
